Trudeau, Dots and Lines I like mathematics because it is not human and has nothing particular to do with this planet or with the whole accidental universe - because like Spinoza's God, it won't love us in return. ~Bertrand Russell, 1912 Although I am almost illiterate mathematically, I grasped very early in life that any one who can count to ten can count upward indefinitely if he is fool enough to do so. ~Robertson Davies, "Of the Conservation of Youth," The Table Talk of Samuel Marchbanks A million thanks to Norm & Andy for submitting some of these quotes!

Related is the Banach-Tarski paradox on doubling the ball, or the recent result of Kiss-Laczkovich that a ball can be decomposed into 22 (or more) congruent pieces. It is probably easier to recognize this as division by the algebraic re-arrangement: What can we say about the numbers that divide another? This program models the formation of mathematical theories from basic concepts in number theory such as multiplication and addiction.

L ECTURE I - I NTRODUCTION In this course, I aim to give a brief and gentle introduction on the elementary theory of numbers. Waverley wishes to bid her farewell before he leaves us.---But Rose Bradwardine--- her situation must be thought of. It is not hard to see how a successor function and addition and multiplication operations can be defined on the number-candidates of I and on the number-candidates of II so that all the arithmetical statements that we take to be true come out true.

In the family of Scott of Thirlestane (not Thirlestane in the Forest, but the place of the same name in Roxburghshire) was long preserved a cup of the same kind, in the form of a jackboot. To these young men Waverley is unusually attentive; they are supplied with money beyond a soldier's wants, and inconsistent with his discipline; and are under the management of a favourite sergeant, through whom they hold an unusually close communication with their captain, and affect to consider themselves as independent of the other officers, and superior to their comrades.'' ``All this, my dear Major, is the natural consequence of their attachment to their young landlord, and of their finding themselves in a regiment levied chiefly in the north of Ireland and the west of Scotland, and of course among comrades disposed to quarrel with them, both as Englishmen, and as members of the Church of England.'' ``Well said, parson!'' replied the magistrate.---``I would some of your synod heard you.---But let me go on.

According to Tait, questions of existence of mathematical entities can only be sensibly asked and reasonably answered from within (axiomatic) mathematical frameworks. Nor did this inequality of distribution appear to give the least offence. The subject of the thesis, including any research, is worked out between the student and the sponsoring faculty.
